As I am a Media Studies teacher who was asked to take over Sociology, I was hoping to change from Beliefs to the Media topic but am concerned (as someone new to Sociology) at the lack of support in terms of textbooks etc.

Could I kindly ask if anyone who is doing the Media topic might point me in the right direction, or even better, be willing to be visited to discuss their approach?

Thanks very much in advance!

I definitely prefer delivering Media and the students undoubtedly get more from it. The Browne textbook is the most helpful, particularly if you are new to delivering it. There are plenty of great resources on here, if you look up those that Anna Cunliffe posted last week they are excellent to get you going.

Hi, 

I switched from beliefs to media about five years ago as it was better suited to my specialism. We use both the Ken Browne book which has a section for media and the Collins - Chapman, Holborn and Moore textbook. I'm based in North London and will be starting the Media unit with year 12 straight after half term so you'd be welcome to come visit or l can share resources.

We study media as I think its very interesting. Its quite contemporary in terms of new media and links to globalisation well. We also use the Browne book.

Thank you very much for these updates- makes me feel more confident in doing this unit.

Paula- that would be really helpful. If you are able to send contact details to ngo@glenthorne.sutton.sch.uk to see if something could be arranged I would really appreciate it!
